Rare Miniature Child's Antique French Sequin Silk Fan 6"

What a little treasure! An antique miniature or child's French fan elaborately decorated with sequins and mother-of-pearl handles. This precious fan measures 6" tall by 6.5" wide fully opened. Perfect for a German or French bisque head doll. The leaf is of fine mesh gauze and embellished with gold and silver sequins in varying shapes----even stars! The m-o-p sticks (having the most glorious rich patina) are accented with inlaid silver dots and gold gilt engraving. The same mesh gauze is repeated on the back. This rare fan does have some condition issues due to its very delicate nature. The gauze has some splits (see photos) and a few sequins are missing here and there. The sticks are all in excellent condition. All in all, it is a fabulous piece that you don't find very often. I purchased it from the estate of the prominent Samuel's family of "Maker's Mark Bourbon".
